Murphy's Law

So, you know that old saying that anything that can go wrong will? Well, that was definitely true of my trip to Lake Powell. Between losing half the group for 8 hours somewhere in a 200 mile long lake, attempting to drive back to the boat on Sea Doos during a storm, running out of gas on the lake, two car accidents (with one totalled car), one water-logged cell phone, an alarming carbon monoxide detector incident, and various other crazy occurrences, the fates seemed determined to complicate our lives.

The amazing thing, though, is how so many little miracles occurred so that everyone managed to get home safe and sound. Plus, now I have a ton of great memories of adventures I never would have dreamed.

Between potential disasters, my week was filled with...
Model poses at the world's largest natural arch...

Dance parties in a cave...

Boat driving lessons...

Imitations of figureheads of old sailing ships...

Water skiing shows...

Watermelon basketball...

And so much more...

I'm in love with Lake Powell!

Such cool pictures! I love the one with you as a ship figurehead. :-) You'll have to fill me in on all these "adventures of doom"!

I am so glad you made it back in one piece, but you forgot to mention running into a glasss door.
Anyway, your pictures are beautiful and I am glad you had a great time.

It's pathetic that I live in Utah, but I've never been to Lake Powell. It sounds like you've had a great summer. Enjoy your last few days off!
